Cheese Flavors

Styles, textures and flavors vary greatly within the hundreds of types of cheeses produced around the world. Differences in the origin of the milk, pasteurization, butterfat content, bacteria and mold, processing techniques and aging, all contribute to vivid flavors specific to regions like the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. In France, there are 21 regions where cheese is produced with each considered to have a terroir — special characteristics that derive from the local environment and give subtle, local influences to the flavor.

Cheese offers incredible aromatics and adds savory taste to breakfast, baked goods, fruit, appetizers, sandwiches, salads, cooked dishes and desserts. Many enjoy cheese paired with a glass of wine. A popular use of cheese flavoring is on products such as popcorn, potato chips, and other snack foods with powdered coating. Cheese is often used with alliums like onion and garlic, as well as creamy dairy flavors, to create a unique taste that makes a snack food product stand out on the shelf.
